NGCAE: Seeding Fractals: Cultivating Connections, Multiplying Impact

April 9 - April 12

The National Guild for Community Arts Education is thrilled share space again! This dynamic event will take place in the vibrant city of Washington, D.C., from April 9 to April 12, 2024.

Our theme this year Seeding Fractals: Cultivating Connections, Multiplying Impact was inspired by adrienne marie brown’s “Emergent Strategy: ” The theme captures the essence of community arts education: the power of interconnectedness and the exponential potential for positive change. In nature, fractals represent intricate patterns that repeat themselves on various scales, from the smallest leaf to the grandest tree. Similarly, the community arts education sector thrives on fostering connections and relationships that lead to multiplied impact.

“Seeding Fractals” reflects the Guild’s commitment to nurturing these connections within the community arts education ecosystem. It acknowledges that every action, no matter how small, has the potential to create a ripple effect, ultimately contributing to a more vibrant and equitable arts education landscape.

TAMA is excited to be presenting at the conference as part of the Transformation in Community track!  Join us on Friday!

“Bottom-Up Play”: Applying TAMA’s Professional Teaching Artist Principles

Since summer 2020, when Teaching Artists of the Mid-Atlantic (TAMA) joined the national call for the recognition of Teaching Artists (TAs) as paid professionals, TAMA members have examined what it means to be a professional and how this identity can shape/transform their collective future. In this interactive workshop, experience how the current art industry exploits TAs and explore how each of us can participate to advance and achieve an equitable, sustainable, and vibrant arts ecosystem with Teaching Artists at the table!
